I think the statement "the risk of service interruptions" is being misinterpreted.

This is a statement on a 10-K. On a 10-K disclosure, a company tries to assess all possible risks that may affect their performance. It's a way of protecting yourself from being sued by shareholders - shareholders can't claim that the management team was silent about the risk of the company CEO being eaten by a mutant space whelk if, in fact, that same risk is in their 10-K.

Service interruptions are a risk. Those service interruptions could potentially come from a finding in the court, or could come from other technical means, such as Verizon interfering with connections to Vonage subscribers, or simply because Vonage will need to do cost-cutting and there may be some interruptions as they consolidate servers and become more lean. Or they may not have any service interruptions at all (or, I should say, no more than normal).

Yes, there has been a spate of outages, and it is worrying - but Vonage has had flurries of outages before. If you are affected directly, by all means - do what you need to do. Voip has more technical bits than landline, and by nature landline is going to tend to be more reliable (of course, tell that to my wife's 92 year old grandfather who has been waiting over a week for Verizon to come out and fix his landline after it was damaged in the last storm).

If they have service interruptions, it could cut into their revenues, which could cause them to be unable to repay their debts, which could eventually lead to delisting. They are not citing an INCREASED risk of outages, only that outages, if they occur, could eventually lead to bigger problems. This is not "news" - if Vonage went down for three weeks a year ago, they'd still be in deep horse puckey with their customer base, and many would evacuate.

Of course, a "panic evacuation" like some people will do is also a risk. If enough customers decide to leave, then revenues drop, etc etc. It's sorta like a "bank run" in the early 20th century. But I doubt the evacuation will reach that level of critical mass...

Vonage is on pins-and-needles until next week. At that point, they find out if they are allowed to continue signing up new customers. If they lose that battle, then (please pardon my overemphasis of this fact): Your. Phone. Will. Still. Work.

If they lose the right to sign up new customers, then (as their own lawyers have said), they are cut off from their oxygen supply. That does not mean they are immediately dead. There are a number of things that can happen, but during that period... Your. Phone. Will. Still. Work.

Their logical step, when their cash reserves run dry or get low, will be to declare Chapter 11. Even with no new customers coming in, they are still making money (before advertising expense - and with no new customers allowed, they'd stop bleeding money on advertising). During Chapter 11... Your. Phone. Will. Still. Work.

During Chapter 11, they will undergo a restructure. Part of that process may include being bought out by another company, and the new company will be interested in a 2+ million customer base. Either that, or they will find a way to emerge. Or they will go to Chapter 7 (receivership), at which point someone will buy out their remaining assets, including their customer base.

UNTIL and UNLESS someone buys out Vonage and decides to abandon a profitable 2+ million-strong customer base... Your. Phone. Will. Still. Work.

And, at any time during this proceeding, you will be able to port your number to the new carrier of your choice.

So, no need to panic and drop your Vonage line now. It will be weeks, probably months, and possibly years before your existing Vonage line stops working. If it does.

Vonage is making money off your business with them. Anyone who buys them out would be foolish in the extreme to throw away that. We, my Vonage-using friends, are a giant mooing Cash Cow. Cash Cows are milked, not slaughtered. ;)

Just proves how threatened they are with Vonage I guess. But it's not over yet nice
With the CEO stepping down, there are just some people who cant stand in the middle
